Organic farming refers to a specific type of agricultural production system used to produce food and fiber which prohibits farmers from using synthetic pesticides. Organic Agriculture is an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, Biological cycles and soil biological activity.  All produce grains, meat, dairy, eggs and fibers must be derived organically. Organic farmers rely on developing biological diversity in the field to disrupt habitat for pest organisms, and to maintain soil fertility. By allowing farm animals access to the outdoors and feeding them 100% organic feed, a healthier farm system is created for people, animals and the environment. Certified organic refers to agricultural products that have been grown and processed according to uniform standards, and must be verified by organizations that have been accredited by the USDA.
 
Conventional farming uses unnatural farming methods such as, chemicals, synthetics, and other materials to manage weeds, pests, and grow and maintain their crops. Since there is no oversight regarding sustainability and the EPA has a high allowance level for chemical/pesticide residues, conventional farms use chemical, synthetics and genetically-modified organisms to kill pests and maximize output. This causes harm not only to the health, but the environment as well.

Organic farming is the method of crop and livestock production that involves much more than choosing not to use pesticides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics and growth hormones. In other words, it is referred to as, low input farming and uses natural sources of nutrients such as compost, crop residues and manure, and natural methods of crop and weed control, instead of using synthetic or inorganic agrochemicals.
 
OBJECTIVES OF ADOPTING ORGANIC FARMING
 
Organic farming may be adopted to achieve the following benefits
  1. To increase genetic diversity
  2. To promote more usage of natural pesticides

Integrated farming   (also known as  mixed  farming) is a farming system with simultaneous activities  involving   crop   and animal. Integrated agriculture involves farming systems with environmental, economic, social, and intergenerational sustainability . In an integrated, sustainable agriculture system, the goal is not necessarily producing immediate outputs, but rather maintaining a system of healthful production, over time. The major components of a sustainable system include economy, environment, and community. This mixed farming system recycles all wastes so that little is thrown away: one’s waste is indeed another’s food.
 
The resources that must be managed in such a system takes all of these related components into account. Economically, the farm operations fulfill the financial needs of the farmers and those employed by the operations. The practices in the agricultural system are executed in an environmentally sound manner, with the preservation of natural resources including soil, water, and air. The operations also sustainably provide access to food to individuals in the community, which allows for opportunities for cooperative relationships .

Plant pests and diseases can wipe out farmers’ hard work and cause significant losses to yields and incomes, posing a major threat to food security. Globalization, trade and climate change, as well as reduced resilience in production systems due to decades of agricultural intensification and biodiversity loss, have all played a part in the dramatic increase and spread of transboundary plant pests and diseases. Pests and diseases can easily spread to several countries and reach epidemic proportions. Outbreaks and upsurges can cause huge losses to crops and pastures, threatening the livelihoods of farmers and the food and nutrition security of millions at a time.
 
Crop rotation means changing the type of crop grown on a particular piece of land from year to year. As used in this manual, the term includes both cyclical rotations, in which the same sequence of crops is repeated indefinitely on a field, and non-cyclical rotations, in which the sequence of crops varies irregularly to meet the evolving business and management goals of the farmer. Good crop rotation requires long-term strategic planning. Crop rotation is the practice of growing a series of dissimilar or different types of crops in the same area in sequenced seasons. It is done so that the soil of farms is not used for only one set of nutrients. It helps in reducing soil erosion and increases soil fertility and crop yield.

The goal of sustainable agriculture is to meet society’s food and Agri, food, Aqua needs in the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Practitioners of sustainable agriculture seek to integrate three main objectives into their work: a healthy environment, economic profitability, and social and economic equity. Every person involved in the food system-growers, food processors, distributors, retailers, consumers, and waste managers-can play a role in ensuring a sustainable agricultural system. Soil health plays an essential role in raising healthy, productive crops and livestock. The many benefits of cover crops are increasingly appreciated among farmers. They play an important role in erosion control, weed control, soil conservation and soil health. With careful selection and management, they fit into any crop rotation or cropping system, such as no-till farming, and are integral to organic farming.
 
  • Increase profitable farm income
  • Promote environmental stewardship
  • Enhance quality of life for farm families and communities
  • Increase production for human food and fiber needs
The demand for food increase and climate change and ecosystem degradation impose new constraints, sustainable agriculture has an important role to play in preserving natural resources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, halting biodiversity loss and caring for valued landscapes.

Agroecology is a scientific discipline, a set of practices and a social movement. As a science, it studies how different components of the agroecosystem interact. As a set of practices, it seeks sustainable farming systems that optimize and stabilize yields. As a social movement, it pursues multifunctional roles for agriculture, promotes social justice, nurtures identity and culture, and strengthens the economic viability of rural areas. Family farmers are the people who hold the tools for practising Agroecology. As an agricultural practice, agroecology mimics natural processes to deliver self-sustaining farming that grows a greater diversity of crops, drastically reduces artificial inputs (pesticides, fertilizers, antibiotics) and recycles nutrients (plant and animal waste as manure). These practices have obvious benefits for farmers – reduced input costs, greater autonomy from corporations, diversified income streams, risk management for crop failures and varied produce to improve nutrition.

Many new plant varieties being developed or grown by farmers have been produced using genetic engineering, which involves manipulating the plant's genes through techniques of modern molecular biology often referred to as recombinant DNA technology. These techniques are included in what is often referred to as "biotechnology" or "modern biotechnology. Assessing the environmental safety of a biotech plant requires an understanding of the biology of the plant itself and the practices used in its cultivation. This knowledge is important in identifying and evaluating potential environmental. The development of an effective national biosafety system is important to encourage the growth of domestic biotechnologies; to ensure safe access to new products and technologies developed elsewhere; and to build public confidence that products in the marketplace are safe. risks and also in designing any appropriate risk management measures.
Most countries use similar environmental risk assessment approaches, which include:
 
• Evaluating the role of the introduced gene in the plant and any changes in the plant’s characteristics
• The possible unintended secondary effects on non-target organisms
• The possibility that the modified plant could persist longer in the environment or invade new habitats
• The likelihood and consequences of the potential spread of newly introduced traits to related plants
• Potential impacts on biodiversity
Farmers Benefit from Agricultural Biotechnology Seeds. Decades of documented evidence demonstrates that agricultural biotechnology is a safe and beneficial technology that contributes to both environmental and economic sustainability. Farmers choose biotech crops because they increase yield and lower production costs.

Soil management is an integral part of land management and may focus on differences in soil types and soil characteristics to define specific interventions that are aimed to enhance the soil quality for the land use selected. Good soil structure improves water infiltration and decreases runoff and erosion. Well-structured soils are porous and allow water to enter easily, rather than running off to be lost to streams and rivers. Specific interventions also exist to enhance the carbon content in soils in order to mitigate climate change. Reversing the degradation of soil, water and biological resources and enhancing crop and livestock production through appropriate land use and management practices are essential components in achieving food and livelihood security.

Agriculture conference focusses on the Livestock/Animal Farming. Animal Farming is described as "studying the biology of animals that are under the control of humankind." It can also be described as the production and management of farm animals. Historically, the degree was called animal husbandry and the animals studied were livestock species, like cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry, and horses. Today, courses available now look at a far broader area to include companion animals like dogs and cats, and many exotic species. Nowadays stress management is also a part of livestock farming as it finally improve product yield and quality. Pigs and poultry are reared intensively in indoor environments. However, indoor animal farming has often been criticized for multiple reasons - on grounds of pollution and for animal welfare reasons. Livestock farming plays a major role in the agricultural business and economy of major developing countries. They take an important part in crop agriculture. Most farms in the developing world are too small to avail tractor or other machinery facilities and their main alternative is animal power. The innumerable benefits of livestock farming can positively effect in a growth of agronomy, agro-economy, biological ecosystem and other agricultural fields.

Agriculture conference focuses on the topic of food security and welcomes to all person who related to food security. A policy orientation for food security and safety include state-wise, previous, current and future policy issues, and cope-wise sustainability of agriculture. The particular part of food distribution in our society can be examined through the research of the changes in the food supply chain. Globalization, in particular, has significant effects on the food supply chain by validating scale effect in the food distribution industry. Provision of an adequate amount of essential nutrients to human beings has ever been the challenge in the province of food security. Hence, malnutrition is heavily interlinked to food security consideration, yet difficult to be eliminated. food security and policy, therefore, become magnetic in the province of research.

Biofertilizer technology has shown promise for integrated nutrient management through biological Nitrogen fixation (BNF). Biofertilizers may also be used to improve Phopshate availability to crops. The efficacy of inoculants can vary with inoculant type, crop species, formulation, soil nutrient level, soil pH/type, existence of relevant microbes in the soil, and weather conditions. Biofertilizers are living organisms that enrich the nutrient quality of the soil. It refers to the use of microbes instead of chemicals to enhance the nutrition of the soil, it is also less harmful and does not cause pollution. Biofertilizers are so important to organic farming because they are completely environment-friendly. Plants that grow with these associations also show other advantageous characteristics such as
 
  • Tolerance to drought conditions and salinity.
  • Resistance to root-borne pathogens.
  • An overall increase in plant growth and developmenT.

Main roles of biofertilizers:

  • Make nutrients available.
  • Make the root rhizosphere livelier.
  • Growth-promoting substances are produced.
  • More root proliferation.
  • Better germination.
  • Improve the quality and quantity of produce.
  • Improve the fertilizer use efficiency.
  • Higher biotic and abiotic stress tolerance.

Transgenic plants are plants that have been genetically engineered a breeding approach that uses recombinant DNA techniques to create plants with new characteristics.They are identified as a class of genetically modified organism (GMO). The aim is to introduce a new trait to the plant which does not occur naturally in the species. A transgenic plant contains a gene or genes that have been artificially inserted. This process provides advantages like improving shelf life, higher yield, improved quality, pest resistance, tolerant to heat, cold and drought resistance, against a variety of biotic and abiotic stresses. Cisgenic plants are made up of using genes, found within the same species or a closely related one, where conventional plant breeding can occur. Some breeders and scientists argue that cisgenic modification is useful for plants that are difficult to crossbreed by conventional methods

The goal of irrigation management is to use water in the most profitable way at sustainable production levels. For production agriculture this generally means supplementing precipitation with irrigation. Irrigation management with regulated water deficit allows a better use of rain water and stimulates deepening of the root system, increasing the volume of the soil which is explored by the roots of the plants. The applied water depth in each irrigation is lower than the water quantity necessary for the crop, but its value must be enough not to significantly affect the development and productivity of the crop. It is crucial to product quality in vegetable crops. Transition in the certain region from dryland to irrigated agriculture, or from flood and low-efficiency sprinkler irrigation, to center pivot and drip irrigation systems. The content of some phytochemicals is related to fruit size and maturity stage, traits that are dramatically impacted by irrigation; however, the relationship between irrigation and phytochemical content is complex. Deficit irrigation may lead to hastened fruit maturity in some vegetables such as melons, peppers and tomatoes. It is important for growers to understand the balance between enhancing phytochemical content by regulating irrigation and maintaining good quality of the product. Drip irrigation provides the best means to regulate water delivery, it is the best technique to assure optimal water uptake and product quality. Irrigation scheduling, which includes both the estimation of the irrigation requirements and application of the appropriate irrigation intervals, is very important in saline water irrigation. It is well known that irrigation development has caused numerous cases of salinization of land and water resources. Gross irrigation calculator (below) can help you determine the average gross amount of irrigation that you will need to apply in order to meet water demand of corn.

Agricultural climatology is a branch of science that concerns itself with the influence of climate on the cultural conditions of agricultural plants, animal husbandry, the occurrence of detrimental influences (both biological and weather conditioned) especially on agricultural operating methods. Weather and its longer term variant, climate, remain among the most important uncontrollable variables in agricultural production systems. The climatology group is involved in a wide variety of agrometeorological and agroclimatological research pattern, decision making for the length of the growing season, the relation of growth rate and crop yields to the various climatic factors and hence the optimal and limiting climates for any given crop, the value of irrigation, and the effect of climatic and weather conditions on the development and spread of crop diseases. This discipline is primarily concerned with the space occupied by crops, namely, the soil and the layer of air up to the tops of the plants, in which conditions are governed largely by the microclimate.
